  2. I KNOW what the caged bird feels, alas!
    When the sun is bright on the upland slopes;
    When the wind stirs soft through the springing grass,
    And the river flows like a stream of glass;
    When the first bird sings and the first bud opes,

    I know why the caged bird beats his wing
    Till its blood is red on the cruel bars;
    For he must fly back to his perch and cling
    When he fain would be on the bough a-swing;
    And a pain still throbs in the old, old scars
    And they pulse again with a keener sting -
    I know why he beats his wing!
    And the faint perfume from its chalice steals -
    I know what the caged bird feels!

    I know why the caged bird sings, ah me,
    When his wing is bruised and his bosom sore, -
    When he beats his bars and he would be free;
    It is not a carol of joy or glee,
    But a prayer that he sends from his heart's deep core,
    But a plea, that upward to Heaven he flings -
    I know why the caged bird sings!


    and this is the other story

    I know why the caged bird sings, ah me,
    When his wing is bruised and his bosom sore, -
    When he beats his bars and he would be free;
    It is not a carol of joy or glee,
    But a prayer that he sends from his heart's deep core,
    But a plea, that upward to Heaven he flings -
    I know why the caged bird sings!
